Meet The Dynamics:
David Wills - Lead Vocals
From the age of six, when he discovered Sam Cooke on his rocket radio, David was a true believer. From his early days fronting bands in the Seattle area, his voice took him across North America and Japan as lead singer for Casablanca recording artists Stonebolt, with Billboard–charted hits including; I Will Still Love You and Baby Don’t You Hide It.
Cristina Ciccone - Lead Vocals
Cristina is one of the original founding members of The DYNAMICS, sharing the lead vocals an fronting duties with David. Her innate ability to channel the vocal styles of female singers from classic to contemporary, has made her one of Canada′s best kept secrets. Let her entertain you.
Terri Owen - Vocals
The small wonder from Down under, Terri is the secret ingredient in the DYNAMICS multi–layered vocal sound. A talented vocal arranger–and pretty mean dancer– she would sing all the horn player′s parts if they′d let her. And sometimes, they do.
Bryan Wilson - Bass Guitar + Lead Vocals
Bryan was a featured member of several popular BC bands during the peak nightclub era of the ′80’s. He was once even signed to a solo recording contract. In addition to laying down the solid bass grooves people love to dance to, his high, clear vocals provide a perfect contrast to the other DYNAMICS voices.
Brian McGibney - Keyboards & Vocals
Brother Brian McGibney is a true disciple of the Hammond organ, which he joins in harmony with Mr. Leslie’s finest rotary speakers. He has a house full of both, along with various other instruments that he′s readily mastered. Not only do his keys drive the DYNAMICS R + B engine, but his strong Irish tenor voice can cut through walls.
Steve Cross - Lead Guitar + Vocals
a.k.a. Esteban Cruz, he′s graced hundreds of stages in his career with well respected blues acts like the Foreman–Young band, and more recently, The Toasters. Steve is a guitar craftsman, who′s solos are as crisp as his natty stage attire.
Mike Schmidt - Drums
A rock–solid veteran of West Coast music legends (Pacheena, Trooper, Doucette, etc), for ‘Schroeder’ it all began with…Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass? He says it was the latin rhythm, but we think it was the whipped cream album cover.
David Patrick - Trumpet
Little did his parents know the doors they were opening when they sent their apple–cheeked boy off to trumpet lessons. Don’t let the youthful good looks deceive you: Dr. Dave has the nightlife in his soul, and it would take more than medicine to cure him.
Andrew Davies - Tenor + Baritone Sax
The hardest–working sax man in show business, Andrew lays it down with cool authority. When he’s not blowing tasty solos for The Dynamics, he can be found in the front line of Spacious Couch, his award–winning jazz–funk ensemble. The jazz–cat beard comes and goes, depending on his wife’s mood.
